Welcome! From February 28 - March 16, my best friend husband Cary and I went on a trip. From Eugene, we traveled to parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana. I haven't blogged about it yet, and thought that highlighting our vacation would be the perfect way to participate in this year's Blogging from A-Z Challenge. My blog isn't always about travel, but for the next month it will mainly feature travel photos and memories of our experience.
This is my fourth time participating in A-Z. For those of you unfamiliar with the challenge, participants post daily during the month of April, except for on Sundays. That gives us 26 posts for the month. It is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. We visit the blogs of others who are taking the challenge, connecting with old friends and making new friends.
Family Farmhouse in Weddington, Arkansas:
On Tuesday, March 3, my cousins Barbara and Carolyn and I headed out to the Johnson farm in Weddington/Summers, Arkansas. We visited with several family members, and walked through the abandoned old farm house where my Dad was born.
I had been yearning to get back there since my last visit in 1976.
As luck would have it, the farm had just sold. I don't know if the new people will tear it down or not, but I am sure glad that we got to go and see it on this trip.
Nobody has lived there since 1979, when my Great-Aunt Mabel Johnson Henderson died. The house was very old even then. It was also our Grandma Sallie's home prior to her death in 1962.
I chose a few things to bring back home with me:
So, that is my story, and I'm sticking to it!
Thanks so much for your visit.
